Izzy (if I may call you that :D ) the machine I imported had a Leetro DSP which used LaserCut 6.1 and I have used vector programs for many years and own a Sign & Graphic shop. I considered LaserCut so lacking that I spent a couple weeks studying Chinese laser software provided with the different DSP manufacturers and ended up changing to a Ruida DSP that would run RDworks V8 (there are a number of older versions that I consider not as good.
LaserCut works to run the laser. I wanted something that looked/worked more link a conventional vector program and the very important thing was the ability to save settings for different materials and recall them easily so that I could set it up and my other workers could use them. This was important to me as a retired person because I enjoy making money (and spending it on travel). I suspect that most of the people here have never seen LaserCut and I only used it until I was able to get and install a different DSP, so you are welcome here but I think all you will learn here is that RDworks is far superior to LaserCut. Enjoy, Gene

I'm a lasercut 5.3 guy, I do all my design work in a CAD program and save as a DXF. Then import it into lasercut and set up my power and speeds.
I stumbled on to Russ's videos shortly after he started, and have been a fan ever since, that's what led me here.
